My friend of 60 years you are going to be missed so much. From maid of honor at my first wedding, to introducing me to my second husband after both our spouses died, and standing up again. So many memories from school, rooming together, and working at the hospital. You will not be forgotten.

Shirley Orr will be remember in our hearts in San Marcos, Texas. Shirley and Glen came to visit their only granddaughter Krystal. My wife and I have good memories of Shirley and Glen and we should never forget Shirley in her role of been a granddaughter. She used to call her only granddaughter "Cookie". God Bless Shirley and may you rest in peace. Estella, Tony Sr. and Krystal.

My thoughts and prayers go out to your family. I was a patient of the Orrs for many years until their retirement. Shirley was always very kind and made me feel comfortable in that dental appointment. May many happy memories be a comfort to you now.
